A History of Athlete Name Changes

Donald A. Smith to Zaid Abdul Aziz

Sport: Basketball
Year: 1976

Born Donald A. Smith, the former first-round pick altered his name in 1976 to Zaid Abdul Aziz. There isn't a definitive reason for Aziz's switch-up, however, after his career came to an end, he dedicated himself and became a more religious man, as well as becoming a drug and alcohol counselor in Seattle.
